once juno digital takes off, they're going to run the whole thing. bmsoho is good too but pricey.

Boomkat, Juno, dSwat are all good.

I mainly use Soundquake though which is a top quality German reggae site.

Boomkat and Juno...and for good techno i use Vinyl Underground and for ace stuff you can't get here Hardwax in berlin...

I agree that Blackmarket are too expensive, but when you go there in person you always manage to get some good tunes if Youngsta's working...got request line a month or so ago from there and some other gems...

Blackmarket, Boomkat and Juno..

Ernie B's used to be the best though (for reggae/dancehall)..you paid in dollars so got the fx rate benefit, and then you ohad a flat shipping charge so could order an absolute motherload of vinyl and not suffer extortionate postage!

In also like turntable lab for various pieces..

Boomkat's good but they don't get everything in. For example, missed out on Boka001 because I assumed it'd eventually come into Boomkat - wrong :(

same with me! :evil: i even ordered twice there and never got my vinyls - they didn't charge me for that but they could have emailed me that they don't accept my credit card! and they have never replyed to any of my emails... :evil:

i realised that redeye are by far most friendly online store (altough they stock only d'n'b & jungle)... :)

yeah, i ordered once - they told me that something is wrong with my bank.. i phoned my bank - everything is OK.. i phoned boomkat - they told me to try again..
i ordered second time - same thing again.. i asked them WHY - and they told me that they asked their bank and they didn't told them a reason.. but if i order again they try to get it..
yeah right
i was already to nervous and ordered at other shops

but obviously it wasn't only me.. maybe they don't collaborate with croatian banks or something... :?

I live in Brazil... So... Juno works fine to me... But if I could walk over London... I'd like to visit Blackmarket...

Best,

Juno has gotta be the quickest, ordered on friday afternoon (my time, they woulda got it first thing fri morn.) and got the records on wednesday afternoon. I'm in Adelaide, South Australia so at least 20 of those hours was flying time. Blackmarket is pricey but just as quick. I'm still waiting for boomkat even though I ordered some things 3 days before I ordered from Blkmrkt and I got those already. Maybe they courier them from Manc. to Lndn by donkey :wink: Has anyone got records from Big Apples online store or Mixing Recs?

Juno's got a good selection and decent pricing, but as a counterpoint to doomstep's story, I offer my own experience.

I ordered from Juno and Uptown within 20 minutes of one another at about 0100 Thursday 13 October. Both orders were shipped the same day. My order from Uptown (3 CDs) arrived mid-day the following Monday (17 October). My order from Juno did not arrive until Wednesday 26 October, and carried a nice $10.03 tax, duty and handling fee.

It seems that I get the best luck ordering from Uptown in the wee hours of Thursday morning. The order is generally shipped that day and shows up on Monday. Even my order of 9 CDs showed up on the Monday.

Yep, props to Boomkat for sure. Always look forward to seeing what’s new on their site each Friday. I only buy tunes from Juno as a last resort, if I can’t find them anywhere else – quite often it works out about £8.50 to buy one UK tune off them, which is a bit silly rilly.

Dswat is a great little supplier for breakcore, ruff electronics and bits of grime and dubstep – Armin who runs it knows his shit.

Yeah, they're sound as a pound. I once got sent the wrong record and emailed to complain. I ended up getting a free record sent out, and got into some comedy email banter with the bloke running the shop!

Juno is quite cheap and reasonably fast and BM (though pricey) has sometimes amazed me with its speed (like order tunes at 5.30pm on wed and there in glasgow 10 on thursday morning!).

HTFR is the evil empire. Expensive, faceless and sometimes annoyingly well stocked
